Overview

These are abstracts of a microfilm of clippings from The Fishkill Standard, a four-page weekly newspaper published in Fishkill Landing, Dutchess County, New York. The Landing later merged with the village of Matteawan to become the village of Beacon, New York. The microfilm consists of a series of scrapbooks, into which an unknown archivist clipped and saved articles including the Local Records column, the Married and Died columns, and articles of local interest. This volume contains marriages, deaths, and other genealogical data from January 3, 1874 to December 29, 1877, arranged chronologically and with a full-name index. Women's names are indexed by what might be the middle or maiden name, if it was unclear which was given. The appendices include a list of signers of the Articles of Association, 1776; Pay Roll of Capt. Abram Schenk's Company; Company Returns While A. Schenk Commanded a Company; Memorial Stones; Pay Abstract of Subsistence Due to the Officers; Return of Bounty, July 1776; and names of the Boards of Supervisors of Dutchess County, 1874-1877. This work also includes maps of the Hudson River Valley, Poughkeepsie to Garrison's Towns of Dutchess County, about 1875. Because this time period included the Centennial of the United States, a series of articles entitled "Fishkill in the Revolution" were included. From these the author has extracted only a few, which may be of interest to people seeking information about their ancestors during the Revolution.
